Oh man I saw this on tv.
Mystery ER on the Health Network 10-26-2007 ?
It was about a young man Aaron, who was taken to the the E.R. with seizures, doctors discover a strange mass inside the boy's brain. Fearful it's cancer, they prepare Aaron for a biopsy until a sharp-eyed radiologist identifies it as a pork tapeworm.
Now,that in its self would be bad enough, but this is a strick Jewish community that DOES NOT DO PORK!!!!
They trace it back to some illegal help.
Seems like the whole communty has this PORK TAPEWORM. When they are all asked to take a blood test to confirm. All illegals disapear!
